Happy Spring!

Hello all!

HAPPY SPRING!! We are certainly feeling it down here in Atlanta with a pollen count over 9,000. woof! But, the weather here has been beautiful and I really can't complaint about 80 degrees and sunshine, so YAY!

I hope everybody enjoyed the first official day of Spring!

Wednesday Randoms

Hello all!

Sorry I haven't posted any of the millions of photos I have been promising. Soon? I don't know, life is hectic right now!

So, here are some random thoughts because I am feeling super scatter-brained!

We are starting renovation part deux this week... oh how I have missed the dumpster, dust and strange men in my house! HA NOT But it will totally be worth it in the end when we have a finished basement!!

So I know wearing leggings as pants is def a faux pas, but I admit I do it. Normally only when I am exercising (and I try to cover my large rear end with a large t-shirt so its not too revealing) but I can't lie, I sometimes wear them to school with an oversized t. What can I say, there is still a little sorority girl in me! (Any other schools make a dress code out of leggings and oversized frat t's? Mine sure did)

Speaking of exercising, I have been doing a bootcamp for 4 days a week for the past 6 months and I am starting to feel it! I don't get sore any more but my body is just starting to ache. I should probably cut it down to 2 or 3 days a week but I know that won't happen.

And on a similar exercise not, I am running a 10k this weekend! It is the Shamrock 'N Roll race hosted by the Junior League of Atlanta. It should be fun and hopefully go well. I surprised myself by running 6 miles a few weeks ago so I think I can do it! Next up, a half? Who knows!

This weekend is the famous Scotts Antique Market (i've written about it several times before) and I am excited to go! It feels like we used to go every single month, but we have been in a while. I'm on the lookout for several different vintage corkscrews for a little DIY project for the new bar in my basement. Hopefully we won't come home empty handed.

I am on a new "diet" these days. I have been tracking my calories and exercise with the Livestrong app according to their directions for me to lose 2 lbs. a week. They need to work on their science a bit because I haven't lost ONE OUNCE! So I have decided to stick to 1200 calories a day (what my doctor said to do) and it is TOUGH! One thing that is automatically cut out? Any beverages other than water. Wasted cals.

I ordered 2 monogrammed water bottles from Tervis Tumbler today and I can't wait to get them! I saw they are now making water bottles and I pretty much constantly have a Nalgene or Camelback with me so I though what the heck not? I saw some plain ones as well as some NFL ones at Bed, Bath, and Beyond today but those aren't my style. Monogrammed? Now thats my style. (BTW, my brother told me I am narcistic because I monogram EVERYTHING, including my car. I beg to differ, sir) Also, I am a little upset Tervis doesn't make ice buckets any more. I really need an ice bucket for my bar and thought that would be a great casual one, but they no longer make them. Wah!

I am in the market for a new purse. Kate Spade is always a go to, but there are several Dooney & Bourke bags that are super cute this season. I have never bought a D&B bag, but they seem really well made and the leather is soft and most bags come in a myriad of colors. Thoughts?
I'm loving this one

I think that is just about all the random comments anyone can handle. I hope y'all are doing fabulously!

Back to the grind

I'm back from sunny SoCal and we had a wonderful trip! We went to vineyards, biking and ate tons of great food! I will update y'all for real later, but here are a few iPhone pictures!!
